Beauty Pick Me Up - Haute Couture Inspired

It's Fashion's biggest week with couture labels proudly parading their latest Spring 2011 collections down the runway. Intricate details, sumptuous fabrics and dramatic fanfare all add to the excitement, but it's the runway beauty that's are truly inspiring as a look that we can wear everyday ourselves!

Some of fashion's biggest names have shown in Paris already and we love the runway make-up! From the bold lips of Dior and Armani Prive, to the emphasized cheekbones and subtleties of Chanel, we've chosen three of our favorite haute couture beauty looks from Spring 2011 and are showing you how to try them for yourself!

Click on the slideshow to see some fave picks!

The Bold Femme Fatale - Taking a cue from Dior's couture show, this look is full of sex appeal and femininity with bold red lips, arched brows and liquid liner.

Keep skin flawless with a gentle exfoliating face wash and use just a touch of blush, if any, to let the bright lips and thick liner take the spotlight. Want your red lips to stay moist and last longer? Apply a thin layer of Carmex or Vaseline to lips before application.

The Woman of Power - Show them you mean business with this seriously sexy look inspired by Chanel. It's all about the cheek bones so emphasis them by sucking in and applying a generous dose of matte foundation to the hollows, being sure to blend, blend, blend towards the temple. Add just a touch of rose gold tinted blush at the apples.

Keep the rest of the look subtle with thinly applied liner, a few coats of mascara and a nude/ pink lip.

The Natural Beauty - Take a cue from the fresh-faced natural beauties of Bouchra Jarrar's couture show by subtly emphasizing what you already have! Keep skin tone even with a tinted moisturizer and a light dusting of mineral powder.

Brow tint and a lengthening mascara bring out the eyes while a pink-hued nude lip adds to the natural look. A light sweep of blush right under the apples of the cheeks finishes the look.
